How to get your home ready for the hot season

Summer is almost upon us! We’re excited to lounge by the pool, host BBQs and enjoy all the season has to offer us, but we know our home needs some TLC for the change in weather too. Have you prepped your house in the best way possible for when the heat hits? Here are few simple tips to make summer more comfortable for you and your home.

  1. Heat blocking blinds

Make sure you’re able to escape the heat inside your home by installing heat blocking blinds on your windows. They’ll be able to keep the hot air out, and the cool air in, leaving you feeling refreshed on even the hottest days.

  1. Up to date air conditioning

We couldn’t even imagine braving the Aussie summer without a good quality aircon! Ensure yours is up to date and working as it should, clearing debris, and cleaning and replacing any filters.

If you’re in need of a new air con install, luckily GND are the experts in installing new, high quality air conditioners from trusted suppliers.

  1. Entertain with a brand-new pergola

As summer comes upon us, we may be more inclined to entertain guests outside. Make sure you have a sturdy pergola, verandah or patio to keep you and guests cool and safe from the harsh sun rays!

If you already have a shaded outdoor area, check to see nothing has rusted or decayed, or needs replacing. This is also a great time to check the globes in your outdoor lighting to make sure they’re working for your first BBQ.

  1. Update your landscaping

There are a few easy tips and tricks you can do to make sure your garden is in shape ready for the change of season. Pull out any weeds that have crept through, clear your gutters from any debris, trim and remove any dead plants, chuck in a new layer of mulch, and fertilise

and mow your lawn. Make sure you also keep an eye on your area’s watering schedule to be as water-wise as possible.
